When students ask you, "Why do we have to know this?" use this assignment to answer that question! Knowing which mood to use while speaking to certain people is an important life skill. Tell students that being able to change the mood of a sentence while speaking could save them...from getting slapped in the face, grounded, a detention...it could even save someone's life!

Four worksheets are provided to review the 5 Verb Moods, and students will practice recognizing and correcting shifts. First, students are given sentences and asked to change the mood. For example, Imperative sentences are bossy and give a command, while interrogative sentences make a more polite request or ask a question. Students will change Imperatives into Interrogative and vice versa.

The next page asks students to read short passages - they will identify where in the passage the mood changes and revise sentences to avoid inconsistency (a shift in verb mood). Finally, students are given a series of multiple choice questions to review definitions and practice identifying the mood of particular sentences. The last activity is a chart that students will complete. An example chart has been provided and then students write 5 sentences, using each mood once.

This activity is great for SBAC practice! It takes students beyond simply identifying by asking them to strengthen and revise writing to avoid inappropriate shifts in verb mood.
